Death of a Mermaids Moon




Death of a Mermaids Moon

A battle raged late into the night
Followed by surrender

  1. She won, I think, with unbearable grief

  4. Oh I really like this, both the poem and the sketch.
    It conjures up a peculiar longing in me...to have the ability to shape shift into a mermaid at the changing of the Moon's phase.
    Now THAT would be fantastic!!

      I have always been fascinated with mermaids and the myths. Why any would give up the freedom to swim to be like us mortals is beyond me☺
